We have talked to people there briefly about this, and I have contact  
info for Asa, whom I met at a conference recently, and will bring  
this up when I talk to him.

IIRC, they actually have multiple entities -- at the very least one  
in Europe and one in the US. That is, talking to them wasn't  
particularly helpful, since we still have to figure this out ourselves.

Some devil's advocate questions:
How much does non-profit / tax deduction matter? Does it *have* to be  
a non-profit? There are tax-write offs, and then there are business  
write offs.

Basically, we need an entity through which money can flow, both in  
and out.
